Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 28-30 oz. fresh frozen baby lima beans
  • 3 cups water (really just enough to cover beans)
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. butter (can sub vegan butter)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. salt
Instructions
  1. Place beans, water, black pepper, and butter in IP. Lock lid, close vent, and set manual time for 7 minutes on low pressure.
  2. Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally (about 10 minutes).
  3. Open lid and add salt. Mix well, then allow to sit for at least 10 minutes on warm setting.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
If you add the salt before cooking, the skin of the beans will be tougher. It is kind of a rule of thumb to always add salt to beans AFTER they are cooked.

    Followed these instructions but 7 minutes was way too long. Came out completely mushy so I will probably add into a puréed soup.

      Wow, I’m so sorry. There was definitely an oversight in writing this recipe. I used low pressure! I’ll update it immediately and retry myself to make sure that I didn’t do something else differently. Really sorry about that. Hope they at least tasted okay!?
